Every now and again, a person comes along who turns left when the rest of the world told and expected him to turn right. You know, the crazy ones. Crazy for climbing a mountain, for swimming an ocean or for crossing a continent on a bicycle. Crazy for starting a journey, for having a outlandish goal or for traveling on the path less taken. Crazy crazy crazy people. Finding it a bit strange how many of these people who do things differently than the norm in life are labeled as being crazy.
It is difficult to explain the aura people that have done crazy things give off when you meet them in person. It is as if they have been let in on a party trick only they and other like minded individuals are aware of. To peer into a persons eyes and see a sole that is alive. From discovering what lies dormant in most of us, awake in some of us, and alive in a handful of us because they found the hack to happiness.

We have the rare opportunity to meet these rebels and crazy people every now again.Whether it is at a book launch or just a casual speech at a educational institute near you. In fact, one of these crazies might be sitting next to you in the coffee shop or standing behind you in the groceries line.
But I want to challenge you, next time you see one of these crazies, take a moment and say hi. Skip your favourite Tv show just once and go and listen to one of them talk about their experiences and what they've been through. You might just walk away with a new perspective about who the crazy one really is.
